I don't normally bother writing hotel reviews, but with the Skylark I will definitely make an exception. After considerable time spent researching options for a Hanoi base from which to launch several legs of our North Vietnam trip, I chose the Skylark hotel and hoped for the best. 5 minutes walk from the old quarter but far enough removed from the madness, it seemed perfect. For once, our experiences exceeded our expectations. We stayed in 3 different rooms, and all were excellent. Clean, well appointed, exactly as described, and amazingly even appeared bigger than in the pictures for once and not magnified by some sort of trick photography. The rooftop pool, although small was a little oasis and great for families with kids, the food was nice and prices reasonable. The best part, however was the one thing you can't capture in a review.... the staff. Without exception the staff were excellent - however, especially worthy of mention was Ngyuen Thi Mai on the front desk who beamed and welcomed us like family every time we returned, helped us with phone calls, taxis and advice and the doorman who greeted us every day and took our side when the only taxi driver who tried to inflate our fare tried it on and sent him packing by defending his guests. 10/10 guys. Highly recommended.
